The Hillsborough County Commission created the Economic Prosperity Stakeholder Committee in March 2012. With their mission to examine the County’s regulatory structure, their ultimate recommendations are intended to ease the burden and cost of regulatory oversight on economic development while maintaining the County’s commitment to quality of life and responsible environmental stewardship. Chaired by Commissioner Sandra Murman and vice-chaired by Commissioner Lesley “Les” Miller, the group recently issued an extensive report with 30 recommendations on Economic Development/ Planning Recommendations and Regulatory Streamlining Recommendations.

These recommendations are a major step towards changing previous mindsets and achieving this goal. A presentation on the report was made at the Planning Commission’s January 14th meeting.
